Come Back To Your Good Senses by M.N. Hopkins

stick_figure_no_backdoor_deals_sign1


We say today that there is far too much fear now upon your planet. This fear spawns odd behavior. That which was rational is less available. Fantasy and cruel images are demanded by Man. It is a loss of good sense that drives the current paradigms.

Yes, a lack of vision as well as a lack of willingness to forge ahead and prepare others for the coming days of tribulation. This is due to the vast lack of leadership, the total lack of real solutions and the mass hysteria that passes for reality when in fact, humankind has lost all connection to the real reasons for being.

Sacrifice is no longer honored. Instead we find ego gratification and glorification of prime importance.

The warriors have left the battle field and the looters have replaced them to take all that is unworthy of honor and all that is unworthy for the survival of Mankind.

A taking from others with no concern for the consequences of your actions. Brothers become enemies as they war over territory, resources and the worlds' monetary funding.

False Bankers within their false Banks have a strangle hold on the world economy. Taking tax money and in return, suffering for many will and has occurred.

Discontent grows and violence ensues, but the violence is instigated by the bankers themselves through their policing forces paid for with the tax payers' money.

So, the slaves to the system finance their own enslavement. This is madness indeed and unnecessary if only people could see clearly and stand resolute together and no longer feed the beast their life blood and life energy.

Come back to your good senses and see clearly what you have become and what you could be if only you would.

To Defile The Earth Is To Defile Ourselves by M.N. Hopkins

Taken by Morten Ross on July 4, 2014 @ Sandbukta, south of Oslo, Norway.


For to defile the Earth, is to defile yourselves, since you are part of the Earth's body. This tendency toward self-destruction will change in time and Mankind will again make an honest effort to protect and cherish the Earth and see to it's restored health and vitality.

GMO Farm Fields Poisoning The Water In Midwestern Rivers

Foto: A new U.S. Geological Study found that midwest rivers in the heart of the nations GMO corn & soy fields are persistently contaminated with neonicotinoid insecticides. While neonicotinoid use has increased throughout the country, the Midwest in particular has seen a dramatic increase over the last decade. The use of clothianidin, one of the chemicals studied, on corn in Iowa alone has approximately doubled in just two years, from 2011 and 2013. 

Neonicotinoids are chemically similar to nicotine and are pesticides that are toxic to a broad range of insect pests. They are also known as systemic pesticides, which are pesticides that spread throughout the entire plant structure, making everything from roots to pollen toxic to organisms that come in contact with it. As a result, neonicotinoids have been linked to the global disappearance of honey bees and other nontarget organisms, such as earthworms, birds, and aquatic invertebrates. The study looks at nine rivers and streams, including the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. The rivers drain most of Iowa, as well as parts of Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. These states have the highest use of neonicotinoids in the country. Not surprisingly, neonicotinoids were found in all nine rivers and streams.

Ready for a summer's dip in the river? Maybe NOT.

10 Incredible Ways Clove Oil Can Heal by Drew Skylo


10 Incredible Ways Clove Oil Can Heal


by Drew Skylo


Off The Grid News,   29 July 2014




When we think of the common spice known as “cloves,” many of us tend to quickly associate it with wonderful food dishes. However, like many other spices and herbs found in our kitchens, there are also several ways to use them as natural remedies as well as in cooking.


Clove oil is extracted from the clove bud through distillation.While eugenol is the main ingredient in clove oil, it is also rich in calcium, iron, sodium, phosphorous, potassium, and Vitamins A and C.


Eugenol is reported to be:
  • anti-bacterial
  • antiseptic
  • anti-viral
  • anti-spasmodic
  • a natural disinfectant
  • broad-spectrum antimicrobial
  • anti-parasitic and larvicidal
  • fungicide
  • a numbing agent
Clove oil has also been purported to increase libido, kill scabies, help expel intestinal worms, relieve flatulence (gas); while some have even claimed that it is effective against tuberculosis bacillus.


(Note: The ONLY part of the clove plant that can be used is the clove bud, all other parts of the clove plant are considered to be too toxic to be used safely. Those with sensitive skin or possible allergies should not use clove oil as it can cause burning and other reactions. Clove oil should not be used by pregnant women.)


Several suggested uses of clove oil mention use of a carrier oil to be included in the recipe for involving a particular use/treatment. Carrier oil is simply coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil or (organic) vegetable oil and is commonly used for the purpose of diluting the clove oil’s strength as clove oil can cause burning to sensitive skin. If you don’t know if you have sensitive skin, I would suggest that you dilute it with one of these carrier oils the first time you use it.




Here are 10 health benefits of clove oil:


1. Tooth pain. A few years ago when I first started really considering natural remedies, I recall that the aroma of clove oil quickly transported me back to when I was a child in my dentist’s chair. I have since learned that clove oil has in fact been commonly used in dentistry and dental products for years. Because of its antiseptic and numbing properties, many dentists have used it to topically numb a patient’s gums before injecting a secondary numbing agent and beginning dental work. The germicidal properties of clove oil make it a desirable additive in many dental products. Some examples of this are mouthwash, toothpaste and topical dental pain relief for mouth ulcers, toothache, sore gums and more.


Keep in mind that a very little goes a looong way. I keep a small bottle of clove oil in my medicine cabinet just in case I suddenly have a toothache or other mouth pain. I have been very grateful at times for how quickly it worked to numb my tooth pain until I was able to see my dentist.


I just tore a small corner of paper towel (about an inch square — you might want to use a little larger piece depending on the area you’re trying to treat) and then I put a very small amount of the clove oil on the paper towel. Since it was an upper tooth that gave me the problem, I placed the treated piece of paper towel between my gum and cheek above the tooth that was hurting. Instant relief! The only side effect I experienced is that it made me drool a little as it seemed to increase my saliva production. (Now the Mom in me just has to say this: Never sleep with anything in your mouth as you might choke!” There, I feel better now, thank you.)


2. Breath freshener. A touch of clove oil can be used as a breath freshener. I do recommend that you dilute it a bit with some carrier oil if you are sensitive and concerned about burning.


3. Wart removal. When treating warts, apply the oil directly onto the wart without diluting it. Cover the treated wart with a Band-Aid. Do this once a day until the wart shrinks up and drops off. It has been suggested that once the wart is gone, massaging wheat germ oil where the wart once was can help if there is any pain and may help if there are any signs of potential scarring.


4. Insect repellant/treat insect bites. What Benjamin Franklin once said — “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” — definitely holds true when it comes to insect bites (as it does with all aspects of our health). Clove oil can work as an effective insect repellent. Out of all the potential plant oils for keeping insects at bay, clove oil has been found to be the only one that can give 2-4 hours of protection against several mosquito types. Try it anywhere from 10-50 percent concentration. After being bitten, clove oil’s eugenol can act as an antiseptic and a numbing agent to stop pain and/or itching.


5. Skin care. Clove oil can be used to treat acne.  It is reported to be very effective in clearing cystic acne and to kill the infections which in turn result in the reduction of swelling in the affected area(s).  Place 2-3 drops of pure clove oil in your skin lotion or oil (I recommend you make your skin lotion from scratch with all-natural ingredients) and use regularly on problem areas along with the rest of your skin. Again, be careful how much you use while keeping in mind its potential to burn sensitive skin.


6. Stress and body aches. Indians used special clove oil massages to relieve stress and pain. Its aphrodisiac qualities act as a stress buster. It is reported that it can also reduce mental exhaustion, fatigue, anxiety and tension as it has a relaxing effect on the mind.


7. Headaches. Combine 2 teaspoons of coconut or almond oil with 1 teaspoon of sea salt and 2-3 drops of clove oil. Use mixture to gently massage your forehead. You will notice a cooling sensation and you should experience relief.


8. Respiratory problems. Some have reported that chewing a clove bud can cure a sore throat. This benefit is because clove oil has a cooling and anti-inflammatory effect on the nasal cavity and the throat. It helps in clearing the nasal passages and thus is useful for respiratory problems like cough, cold, sinusitis and asthma. (Note: You should not try natural remedies without consulting your physician if you have any reservations about possible allergies or other health concerns.)


9. Earaches. Here’s one home remedy recipe: 2 teaspoons of sesame oil added to 3-4 drops of pure clove oil. Warm it, but be careful not to warm it too much. Next, slowly apply this mixture inside your ear.


10. Indigestion. Clove spice is an important ingredient in many Indian dishes. Clove aids in healthy digestion. It also provides relief from problems related to digestion. It can help with nausea because of its anti-spasmodic properties.

The Truth About Dishonesty - Dan Ariely




Published on August 15, 2012
      
Dan Ariely, bestselling author and professor of psychology and behavioural economics at Duke University visits the RSA to examine the mechanisms at work behind dishonest behaviour, and the implications this has for all aspects of our social and political lives.

Listen to the podcast of the full event including audience Q&A:

http://www.thersa.org/events/audio-an...

Youtube link:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGGxguJsirI


I wrote this about the need for honesty in Community several years ago.

Honest Living:

Light and Light alone is enough to heal all ills and illnesses from humankind's long list of illusionary complaints.  For Light with it brings an honesty in living and in an honest way cannot the illusions of illness exist in Man.

For Man was taught to be ill as he was taught to be dishonest by those who mislead and misinform for their own selfish purposes.  For a return to honest living would insure a return to healthy individuals as well as groups within human communities.

Honesty is what is most needed today.  Man has been taught to lie as he has been taught to deceive.  For when a few impose a false reality or illusion than can no longer Man see with clear eyes, feel with clear emotion, and think with a clear mind.  Reason no longer exists in this system of forced control and sickness prevails.

A natural system changed to an unnatural one will always exhibit illness or conflicts within the human organism.  Germs, microbes, viruses, and bacteria were all the creations of a sick mind that inflicted others to believe in sickness rather than in health.

The concentration is now upon weakness of every kind and no longer upon Man's natural strength and health nutured by a strong mind that is not controlled by outside influences.  Man now reacts to fabricated rumors and lies reinforced by falisfied information and statistics that make no sense or would make no sense if Man still had the ability to think clearly and see the reality of his or her existence here in the world of Man.

A simple view is always better.  Complexity was the invention of those who confuse in an effort to control Mankind's direction.
 
Stop and look at not just the outer landscape, but look within to see where truth makes it's home.  No longer trust your medias.  For they are nothing more than the means to mass deceive.  You are bombarded with a multitude of useless information to distract and keep you from real information for your decision making processes.  In fact, you have given up your decision making abilities and handed them over to a few others who entertain rather than intelligently inform you of the world around you.

We see many dark clouds arising within your human communities.  This is a natural process that must occur before the release of Light into your world.

There are so many conflicts now as the few make a last desperate attempt to control the affairs of Man.  This will fail as all efforts that come from an ego source will fail.

Have no fear and know that balance will again return to your world and kindness and sanity will rule again the affairs of Man.  For few can see the need to reconnect to both Nature and to God.  This is the only way to maintain balance in your world.

Let not fear be your guide, but let love and reason once again rule.

GMOs Have The Protential To Destroy Our Planet - Professor Nassim Taleb

Foto: Distinguished NYU Professor of Risk Engineering, NASSIM TALEB, recently raised eyebrows when he said genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have the potential to cause “an irreversible termination of life at some scale, which could be the planet.” The Precautionary Principle - which is what Taleb calls his warning - is all about managing risk, not about waiting for it to surface. The fact that GMOs are a systemic entity is undeniable. We don’t, as Taleb says, argue that a game of Russian roulette is safer with each empty barrel we find. It is, in fact, more dangerous.

Is Glyphosate In Roundup Depleting Your Body Of Health Giving Minerals?

Foto: Glyphosate, the active ingredient in the ubiquitous herbicide Roundup, was originally patented as a chelator back in 1964. It bonds to minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium & manganese and removes them. It was used to clean pipes that had mineral buildup. It is the most widely used herbicide, primarily due to the widespread cultivation of Roundup Ready GMO crops. This leads us to ask... when you spray a chelator on our farmland and our food, how much of the nutrients are chelated from the soil and the crops. Add to that the fact that glyphosate is in our food - and we have to wonder to what extent it is removing vital nutrients from us?! BAN ROUNDUP.

My Gardasil Survivor by Kate from Sydney, Australia

Gardasil Survivor
Kate's daughter, GS

 

Australia: My Gardasil Survivor

 
by Kate
from Sydney
Sane Vax, Inc.,    22 July 2014
 
I am the fortunate one.
I am the Mother of a brilliant, intelligent, empathetic, and wise beyond her years young woman.
We live in Sydney, Australia, with her Dad, little brother, and little sister.
I will call her G.S.
As in Gardasil Survivor. 
 
G.S.
Golden girl.
My first born.
Ridiculously talented.
Ridiculously wise.
Ridiculously beautiful inside and out.
Like all our children, ridiculously loved.
She remains so.
 
However now, she is ridiculously ill. 
 
G.S. is the type of person that everyone loves.
 
Pre-Gardasil, everyone celebrated her accomplishments with us.
 
Athletics champ.
 
Singing voice to die for.
 
The courage to sing a solo on the stage of the Sydney Opera House in front of a 600 strong choir.
 
She was just ten years old. 
 
School Captain in Primary School.
 
Primary School Dux.
 
The stuff we are lead to believe dream kids are made of.
 
More than I can even begin with here.
 
You get the picture. 
 
When G.S. was in her first year of High School, I gave my consent for her to receive the Gardasil vaccine.
 
I totally believed that I was protecting her.
 
I did not, however, research the side effects of this particular vaccine prior to giving my consent.
 
Put bluntly, I bought the hype. 
 
Hind sight screams at me daily. 
 
We now live with the consequences of that decision.
 
Worst of all, my daughter has been forced to endure what she now has to go through because of that decision.
 
The effects of toxicity.
 
The myelin depletion in her brain, made evident in the results of an MRI during her first hospital admission.
 
Cue the auto-immune disease diagnosis.
 
And then the P.A.N.D.A.S. one.
 
Welcome chronic depression into the mix.
 
Suicidal ideation.
 
Low blood pressure.
 
Muscle and joint pain.
 
EEGs to capture seizures.
 
Inability to eat and drink, or care to do anything.
 
Having to be constantly motivated to move, speak or participate in her own life.
 
Sleeping on a mattress outside her bedroom door at night to protect her from herself.
 
Hiding and locking up all knives and sharps for the very real fear of suicide.
 
Being too unwell to continue High School or complete H.S.C.
 
Feeling less than adequate because of it.
 
A revolving door of hospital admissions.
 
Denial
Fear, pain, anguish, guilt. 
 
There is so much more.
There continues to be so much more.
There is no magic bullet.
There is only on-going management, not cure.
We have been forced to accept a new brand of normal
Much of it is simply not easy.
We are, however, entirely committed to making our girl’s quality of life all that it should, and could be. 
 
We are four years post Gardasil now.
We continue with the battle.
Our G.S continues with her battles.
We have no choice. There are no options.
Every day.
Battles.
 
There are so many other issues and concerns that I could outline here, but these are some that I hope you might consider.
 
Do inform yourself about the possible side effects in relation to the Gardasil vaccine.
Check out the product insert and look at the ingredients in the vaccine.
 
Weigh up the side effects very carefully.
 
Assess the general health of your child, and consider the impact of this vaccine in terms of your own child’s genetic predisposition which may or may not result in the manifestation of particular illnesses, syndromes or conditions.
 
Clearly understand that the Gardasil vaccine is affording it’s marketers a massive amount of monetary profit.
 
With no proven efficacy. 
 
The thing is, most parents that have given consent for the administration of this vaccine to their children are not crazy hippie, weirdoes, or ill-informed ant-vaxxers.
 
Be prepared for mainstream media and most doctors to characterize you that way should you refuse this vaccine.
 
Sadly, governments, and profit driven pharmaceutical companies would like to paint us in that way.
 
Because it is to their benefit.
 
It is also much easier, safer and convenient for us and them for everyone to go with the flow.
 
It is simply not the case.
 
It is simply untrue.
 
Do not be intimidated.
 
The co-incidence argument is also tiresome and unfounded.
 
What an incredibly hard lesson we have learned. 
 
If only I could turn back time.
